Redbrick Communications pledges support to Framework in its mission to end homelessness
As part of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment, we’re donating consultancy expertise to the homelessness charity Framework. The charity works tirelessly to change lives for the better and tackle homelessness across the East Midlands.
Working closely with the communications team at Framework, we will help with strategic advice and media outreach to raise awareness of its work on a local, regional, and national level.
Framework’s Big Sleep Out, the charity’s flagship fundraising event, marks our debut CSR engagement. As well as supporting the communications campaign, we have a team that have signed up to spend the night in sleeping bags at Nottingham Racecourse on 7 October.
The annual event aims to raise vital funds to help get the growing number of local rough sleepers off the streets. Visit our fundraising page to support the Big Sleep Out for Framework.
The announcement of our partnership coincides with reports indicating numbers in temporary accommodation in England have hit a record high, and as the charity looks ahead to launching its Winter Appeal on World Homeless Day (10 October 2023).
Claire Eden, Head of Fundraising and Communications at Framework, says: “As a small team, we are incredibly grateful to Redbrick for donating their time and expertise. We look forward to working closely with them to help us on our mission to end homelessness and tackle disadvantage. With the cost of living and housing crisis once again hitting the headlines, it has become ever more important for us to continue to support people and our communities.”
Liz Bee, Account Director at Redbrick Communications, says: “No one can have failed to see the growing number of people sleeping on the streets. Having seen firsthand how Framework is changing lives devastated by homelessness and giving people a chance of a better future, we knew we wanted to try and help make a difference. We’re excited to be working with the comms team to help shine a light on the issues and the support needed to provide long-term sustainable solutions.”
